Michael Goldwasser of Easy Star All-Stars about Thriller

One of the most successful reggae bands in recent years is Easy Star All-Stars from the U.S. They’ve made themselves an own niche recording reggae re-interpretations of classic rock albums.

The latest reggae do-over is however not a rock album. Instead they’ve taken on the most sold album of all time – Michael Jackson’s pop and R&B masterpiece Thriller, a set that includes smash hits such as Beat It, Billie Jean and the title track.

One of the musical minds behind Easy Star All-Stars is Michael Goldwasser, the son of a rabbi and a graduate from Columbia University. I’ve had the opportunity to talk to him about the new album and what drives him. Check the full story over at United Reggae.
